Saluting the stream of life

Hampton Station abuts Elmwood Creek, where generations of West Oak Cliff residents have hiked, played and observed the passage of seasons. The station honors the creek's importance and the neighborhood's famous son, blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughan. Lyrics to his song "Tick Tock" are inscribed in the station's pavers, patterned to suggest a creek bed.

Each canopy column illustrates the creek's flora and fauna, starting with the bottom section that represents water with fish and other aquatic life. The middle section depicts tree leaves and land animals such as frogs and grasshoppers and snakes, while the top section portrays birds soaring in the sky.

Hampton Station SculptureArtist Edwin McGowin's untitled sculpture incorporates stylized animals and vegetation native to the area, harmonizing with the station's arched canopies and suggesting a "circle of life" in society as well as nature.

Design Artist: Leticia Huerta
